Judicial Seminars Disclosure
The Judicial Conference of the United States has adopted a private seminars disclosure reporting policy that requires educational program providers and judges to disclose certain information relevant to judges' attendance at privately-funded educational programs.
Any organization covered by the policy that issues an invitation on or after January 1, 2007 (for a program commencing after that date), to a federal judge to attend an educational program as a speaker, panelist, or attendee and offers to pay for or reimburse that judge, in excess of $305, must disclose financial and programmatic information.
Overview of Privately Funded Seminars Disclosure System provides information on how the system works for judges, education program providers, and the public.
